Very friendly staff and very nice food. The seafood chowder was fantastic and the ribs were very good

Called in thinking we will try this place out, left thinking we call in here on the way back! Good service, great food, huge servings. Great value for money. I don't usually cut my burgers in half, but this time I needed too.

Always good to go there for a bite to eat and a beer or two before, or after a ride. Conveniently, it's close to home and very accessible no matter which direction you're coming back from your ride.

Jim Partington



Great place for a meal or drink stop. Great menu lots of choice. Meals are really good size and great value for money. Service was great, quick and consistent. Highly recommend trying. Lots of drink choice too with full bar. Clean and tidy. Lots of parking. Will be back to try out your duck dish.

Muddy waters is a VERY Popular watering hole. Serving good food and beer at reasonable prices. Can get Very busy at the weekend when the classic car and motorcycle clubs decide to drop in. Situated on the banks of the Mighty Waikato river it's a nice picturesque spot for a break if you're on a long trip.

Enjoyed a delicious meal here with my son on Saturday. The carbonara was delicious as was my son's burger meal. So big he couldn't finish it. Great chef with great hospitality.
